By now you would think everyone would know not to mess with John Wick, but in the first trailer for the next film in the franchise everyone wants a piece of him. And while being declared “excommunicado” means the ultimate battle for survival for the best assassin in the world, it also means a whole lot of danger for everyone else, and a whole lot of awesome for moviegoers.The first look at John Wick: Chapter 3 – ParabellumÂ (in Latin, parabellum means “prepare for war”) offers up everything fans have come to expect from the series, like gorgeous sets, crazy action sequences, John Wick being the world’s coolest bad ass, and of course, a cute doggo. But we’ve also got some things we didn’t even realize we needed but now can’t imagine living without. Once you’ve seen John Wick riding a horse and kicking his enemies, and you’ve watched him be chased by a katana-wielding gang of killers, you realize life was incomplete before.“Do you expect him to make it out?”“A $14 million bounty on his head, and everyone in the city wants a piece of it? I’d say the odds are about even.”JUST HOOK IT TO MY VEINS!
Like past John Wick movies, the film has a killer cast. Joining Keanu Reeves again are Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Ian McShane. This time they’ll also be joined by Anjelica Huston and Halle Berry, who looks to be playing one of the few friends John Wick has left.
At least we hope she’ll be playing his friend. He might be excommunicado, but he’s still John Wick. Even if everyone else is going to war with him that doesn’t mean you should.
